UWACS is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2021
DECEMBER 19 at 4.00pm
In Terra Pax at Winthrop Hall, UWA
Celebrate the Christmas season with UWA Choral Society. Highlights include JS Bach’s Magnificat and Gerald Finzi’s In Terra Pax. A true splendour of the Baroque, Bach’s Magnificat is a stirring, celebratory work. In Terra Pax, subtitled ‘A Christmas Scene’, borrows from Robert Bridge’s poetry and Luke’s Gospel. It is a radiant work of great beauty and sincerity.
To conclude, sing along with the choir as it performs an international selection of Christmas carols and then continue the festivities with UWA Choral Society’s annual picnic by the UWA Reflection Pond following the performance.
The Big Sing Messiah
Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, UWACS has made the difficult decision to reschedule our Big Sing Messiah until 2022. We invite anyone who is interested or has already registered to sign up for our newsletter to make sure you receive information about the new dates.
Seasoned Messiah lovers and Handel newbies alike are invited to join members of UWA Choral Society for our Big Sing Messiah!
Never sung Messiah before, or keen to revise the tricky bits? Not to worry – in the morning we start with basics, and later we combine with those more experienced. This is your chance to explore the best-loved choral music of all time in a friendly, supportive environment alongside experienced members of UWA Choral Society, under the guidance of conductor Kristin Bowtell.
Or perhaps you’ve sung the Messiah dozens of times, and you don’t need quite as much rehearsal? No problem – join us after lunch!
The afternoon finishes with a sing-through of part 2 of Handel’s Messiah, accompanied by Australia’s wunderkind organist Alessandro Pittorino, and featuring brilliant young soloists. Not to be missed!
